Apple Honey Sauce?

That's right! That's what I tell my kids when I cook it!
Apple Honey Sauce.

No, Mummy is not lying.
The other brand of Japanese Curry which I bought the very first time, Vermont Curry, had the words "Curry with a touch of apple and honey". There were pictures of a jar of honey, and an apple!
My boys couldn't read then ....

"Can you see the apple and jar of honey?" ... "YES!"
"Shall I cook this Apple Honey Sauce for you?" ... "YES!"
Since then, this dish changed its name to Apple Honey Sauce =)

The boys like to eat their rice with the sauce. The curry flavor is mild, and the sauce has a slight sweetness to it. It is an easy dish to prepare, and a nice warm dish to serve on a cold "Autumn= Almost Winter" night ...

How do you prepare the "Sauce"?
I fried some onions in oil. Then I add some diced chicken thigh fillets. When the chicken is almost cooked, add about 2.5 cups of water, and slowly bring the water to a simmer. Add some carrots. Dissolve the "Apple Honey Sauce" cubes in the hot water. Let cook about another 15 minutes. Make sure the chicken is fully cooked before you turn off the heat. You can also add some potatoes, after adding the carrots. You will need to cook longer, as the potatoes will take a longer time to soften. The "sauce" will be thicker than when you omit the potatoes.

Serve the sauce over a bowl of steaming hot rice. Add more vegetables if you like ... broccoli, shredded lettuce or baby spinach. You can also pour the sauce over a bowl of wavy egg noodles, angle's hair, or any pasta of your choice! East meets West ... YUMMY!
